        Plan du Port et de la Rade de Montevideo, dans le Rio de la Plata, levé en 1831.

      Paris: Dépôt Général de la Marine, 1833. Engraved map, two conjoined sheets measuring 655 x 988 mm. in total. Splendid map of the coastline of Uruguay - with detail of the original city grid of Montevideo - from the golden age of French scientific hydrography. The map was produced by the French navy and published by the Dépôt Général de la Marine. Like the Admiralty Office in London, the Dépôt served both as a depository for marine charts and a publishing firm. The intention was to provide accurate and up-to-date charts for the use of the navy and merchant marine.The present example is remarkable for its detail and finesse of execution. Fine.

        Anatomia universale [...] rappresentata con tavole in rame ridotte a minori forme di quelle della grande edizione pisana per Antonio Serantoni.

      Florence: Batelli Vincenzo, 1833. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Large Folio. 2 parts. Large folio (470x335 mm). Loose sheets as issued in two modern folder boxes. Text volume: 292, [4] pp. including title page and index at end. Untrimmed, with slight occasional fraying to margins, light spotting throughout. Plate volume: 150 engraved plates, comprising 75 partly printed in color and hand-finished, and 75 uncolored duplicates in outline. Minor spotting and marginal soiling and fraying to a few plates. Protected in modern cardboard folder with red morocco label to vellum covered spine and boards covered with marbled paste paper.An outstanding, unsophisticated copy as issued. ----Garrison-Morton 409.1; Wellcome IV, p.73; Roberts & Tomlinson p. 390; Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp.126 and 130; DSB IX, p.154. - Small folio authorized edition of Masgagni's great Anatomia Universa. As incredibly spectacular as the images of the Anatomia Universa were, Antonio Serantoni, the artist responsible for the drawing, engraving, and hand-coloring of that enormous work, recognized that its great size made it excessively expensive and virtually impossible to use. Therefore, three years after completion of the elephantine edition he issued a new edition as a normal-sized folio from Florence, with reduced versions of the spectacular hand-colored plates, and many changes. It is from this version that the work is generally known. Very Good.

        The Memorial and Justification of Mr. Barton ... [bound with] The Affairs of the Australian Agricultural Company.

      Cornhill [and] London: Pelham Richardson, 1832 &, 1833. Two works bound in one, octavo; the first 73 pp. with folding table; the second 33 pp.; tan half calf. Two very scarce works relating to the scandals that engulfed the Australian Agricultural Company, both written by the Company's agent William Barton, father of Sir Edmund Barton, the first Prime Minister of Australia. The Company was founded in London in 1824, with members of the Macarthur family actively involved in its establishment. On the advice of Commissioner Bigge, settlers with capital were encouraged to take up land in Australia: the Company took up a vast land grant in Port Stephens in early 1826 but despite huge support and investment, the venture initially struggled. During this period a quarrel between Barton, appointed as accountant in 1824, and the manager Sir William Parry, led to Barton's resignation.The first book, therefore, is literally Barton's "memorial and justification", and of great interest for the correspondence that is printed, especially that of Barton himself and also Sir William Parry's. Barton's detailed publication is one of the more significant early works relating to Port Stephens and the Company generally. The second book, published the following year, was also an integral part of the public defence and remuneration claim of Barton against the Company. Barton published this text of the company's accounts 'incontestably to prove that it is not attributable to my conduct' that the reports from New South Wales were so brief and unpromising. He also appends letters from key figures in the Company, notably one from John Macarthur who, amidst complaints of shattered health, asserts 'The Grant, with a very slight exception, is a barren waste.'Ferguson initially listed only the Mitchell Library copies of both of these works, but an additional copy of the Memorial and Justification (his own) and three of the Affairs appear in the Addenda volume. Very good, in modern binding.

        "Emigration in Search of a Husband".

      London: J. Kendrick, 1833. Handcoloured etching from a scrapbook with abbreviated title, 240 x 195 mm., lower margin and caption title incomplete. A famous satirical cartoon, lampooning the fate of a prospective bride upon her departure for the Australian colonies. A shortage of women was a defining quality of colonial society from the foundation years through the 1840's. Only the mass emigration of the gold rush years finally equalized the gender imbalance.This cartoon was printed in 1833 whilst female emigration was, in part, subsidized by the government. Although intended to be humorous, it does reflect the possibilities for social and economic advancement on offer in New South Wales. It depicts a slender porter struggling to carry a heavy trunk for a portly woman wearing a large bonnet. The porter asks "What are you going to Sidney for, pray ma'am ?" and the lady replies: "Vy [why] they says as how theres lots of good husbands to be had cheap whereas the brutes in England can't see no charms in a woman unles she's got plenty of money to keep 'em in idleness". This dialogue is significant as the poor grammar of the woman reflects her low social status and aspirational intent. Bottom margin trimmed and cropped, lacking words from the original full caption title (only the word "Emigration" is retained), likewise lacking the printmakers details and address.

        An Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture and Furniture...

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. Thick octavo, half title including publishers advertisements to verso, almost 100 lithographs on thicker art pages (but with continuing pagination) as well as more than 2,000 wood engravings throughout, early owner's inscription,, very good; half dark blue morocco, original marbled boards, gilt. A very attractive copy of the first edition of this important historical architectural reference work, in a Sydney binding, and with a handsome gift inscription to a Mr Carr, 'on his leaving for Sydney' in 1835. It is also likely that the pencilled "Mort" in an early hand refers to the later owner of the work, the Sydney businessman Thomas Sutcliffe Mort.Broadbent wrote that this work was the 'principal architectural handbook for amateurs and professionals' in the 1830s and 1840s, and it evidently exerted a vast influence on the colonial architecture in New South Wales (Australian Colonial House, p. 205). The work is recognised as helping define Victorian architecture, a style that is very prominent in the history of Australian design.John Claudius Loudon (1783-1843), a Scottish botonist, horticultural designer and editor of The Gardner's Magazine is known well for his designs for the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Stradsett Hall in Norfolk and the Abbey Cemetery in Bath. With this work, Loudon established himself as an expert in the language of rural architecture: 'Loudon's involvement with architecture arose naturally out of his interest in landscape. He made himself a specialist in rural vernacular building types by writing his Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture (1833). This work was unprecedented in that it was consciously addressed to the middle class rather than to an aristocratic audience' (Brittanica).A pencil note on the front pastedown makes the interesting comment that when this 'book was rebacked (actually rejointed) in 2004 the spine was found to be lined with an 1845 Sydney newspaper. So "Mr Carr" had the book rebound soon after arrival in Sydney.'. Some scattered foxing; spine with some cracking and skilfully re-jointed.

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithographic sheet measuring 340 x 540 mm. Original lithograph from the official account of the Dunont d'Urville expedition, comprising portrait studies of West Australian Aborigines.Louis de Sainson, the topographical draughtsman travelling with the expedition, made many detailed studies of the local inhabitants of King George Sound from 15 to 25 October 1826.

        Vue des Caps du Port Jackson. Nouvelle Galles du Sud.

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1833. Lithograph, 205 x 320 mm.; very good condition, mounted. This fine view shows ships of the Astrolabe voyage passing through Sydney Heads.The Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille, renamed in honour of La Pérouse) sailed from Toulon in April 1826. Dumont d'Urville was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander himself had been a naturalist. Because of his great interest in natural history, huge amounts of scientific date and specimens were collected, described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. The expedition sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Straits, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on December 1, 1828.The expedition sailed for New Zealand in January 1827, explored Tasman Bay, found a pass between an island in Cook Strait and the northern shore of South Island (the island consequently named d'Urville and the strait "French Strait") and worked up the coast of North Island, completing the "most comprehensive exploration of the islands since Cook's death". They made Tonga in April 1827, explored the Fiji archipelago, New Britain and New Guinea. In November, after a stop at Amboina, they coasted along the northwest coast of Australia and reached Tasmania. In 1828 they continued to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse, and stopped at Guam in the Marianas, before returning via the Cape of Good Hope, reaching Marseille on March 25, 1829. Some browning of the outer blank margins.

        Observations of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars, made at Slough, with a Twenty-Feet Reflector, between the years 1825 and 1833. Offprint from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London

      London: Richard Taylor, 1833. First edition, the very rare offprint issue, of Herschel's famous 'Slough Catalogue,' which includes 2306 nebulae and star clusters, 525 of which were discovered by Herschel himself. (Parkinson, Breakthroughs 296). He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1836 for this work. Herschel was, together with his father William, the greatest discoverer of nebulae and star clusters. Herschel explained his motivation for the present work in his Account of some Observations made with a 20-feet Reflecting Telescope (Memoirs of the RAS, Vol. II, 1826): 'The nature of nebulae, it is obvious, can never become more known to us than at present, except in two ways - either by the direct observation of changes in the form or physical condition of some one or more among them, of from the comparison of a great number, so as to establish a kind of scale or graduation from the most ambiguous, to objects of whose nature there can be no doubt.' The first way had been realised through his detailed observations of the Orion and Andromeda nebulae in his 1826 paper; the second was carried out in the years 1825-33, culminating in the present work. "For his observations John Herschel used a reflector with an aperture of 18¼", which was completed in 1820. It used two mirrors, one made by his father alone and another one cast and ground under his father's supervision. The telescope resembles William Herschel's famous 'large 20ft'. When John Herschel started observing, his intention was not so much the discovery of new nebulae and star clusters but rather he wanted to re-examine the three catalogues of his father. The main goals were identification and determination of exact positions... "John Herschel could observe a large fraction of his father's objects. Their data were partly confirmed, supplemented and corrected. Moreover, he discovered many new ones... John Herschel compiled a (pretty complete) catalogue of all non-stellar objects known up to 1833. The work meant real progress and became a great success, which was due to remarkable new features: absolute positions (for 1830), order by right ascension and new designation (h). The great homogeneity rests on the fact that all objects were observed and measured by John Herschel with the same telescope. The h-number got the new standard designation (e.g. h 50 = M 31)" (Steinicke, pp. 52-3). Soon after the present work was published, on 13 November 1833, John and his family set sail for Cape Town, where he carried out, over the next four years, a similar survey of the southern sky. This work was published as Results of astronomical observations made during the years 1834, 1835, 1836, 1837, 1838, at the Cape of Good Hope; being the completion of a telescopic survey of the whole surface of the visible heavens, commenced in 1825 (London, 1847), and did for the southern hemisphere what the present work did for the northern hemisphere: it described 4015 nebulae and star clusters. On his return to England, John continued his astronomical researches, which culminated in the General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars (1864), which contained 5,079 entries. In 1886, J. L. E. Dreyer was asked by the RAS to update the General Catalogue, leading to the publication of the New General Catalogue (NGC) in 1888. While engaged in the work leading to the Slough catalogue, Herschel discovered between three and four thousand double stars. These were catalogued and described in a number of papers published in the Memoirs of the RAS. Offprints of two of these papers are bound with the Slough catalogue in the present volume: Fifth Catalogue of Double Stars observed at Slough in the years 1830 and 1831 with a 20-feet Reflector; containing the Places, Descriptions, and measured Angles of Position of 2007 of those objects, of which 1304 have not been found described in any previous collection; the whole reduced to the epoch of 1830.0, pp. [ii], 81; 'Notice of the Elliptic Orbit of ? Boötis, with a second approximation to the Orbit of ? Virginis. To which is appended, a Notice of the Elliptic Orbit of ? Coronae', pp. [ii], 149-157 (both published in Memoirs of the RAS, Vol. VI, 1833). Provenance: Purchased at the sale of Edwin R. W. Wyndham-Quin (1812-71), third Earl of Dunraven, was styled Viscount Adare from 1824 to 1850. On his graduation from Trinity College, Dublin in 1833, Adare's "interest in astronomy [was such that] he decided to establish an observatory on his estate at Adare Manor... [He] studied for three years at Dunsink Observatory under Sir William Rowan Hamilton. He threw himself into astronomy with such intensity that he damaged his eyesight through overuse of the telescopes and had to abandon his plans to establish an observatory at Adare" (Dictionary of Irish Biography). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1834. John Herschel (1792-1871) made a short journey to Ireland in 1827 where he met Hamilton, and it is probable that it was through him that Adare made Herschel's acquaintance. The closeness of their friendship is attested by a four-page letter from Adare to Herschel, dated 12 February 1833 and preserved in the Royal Society. Adare asks "whether your great work on the nebulae [i.e. the present work] will be published previous to your departure [to Cape Town]... I was reading lately with much interest your paper on double stars observed with the 7-foot equatorial, in which you have made remarks on the action of telescopes.' He goes on to discuss an improvement in his eye problems, observations that he and Thomas Romney Robinson had made with Mr. Cooper's telescope at Marktree in Co. Sligo ('when I begin about telescopes and stars I find it very difficult to stop'), and asks Herschel to congratulate Mrs. Herschel (whom he had obviously met) on the birth of a son. In later years Herschel sent Adare an inscribed and annotated copy of his translation of Schiller's Der Spaziergang. The present offprints must have been given to Adare by Herschel, but they are not inscribed. DSB VI: 325; Parkinson Breakthroughs 296; W. Steinicke, Observing and Cataloguing Nebulae and Star Clusters, CUP, 2010. Large 4to (275 x 218 mm), pp. [ii], 359-505, with eight engraved plates (with some spotting) drawn by Herschel and engraved by Js. Basire, each with a tissue guard.

A fine and interesting letter from one of the founders of the Sydney Herald, to his sister in Glasgow, on his ambitions to set up his own house and adjoining print shop.William McGarvie (1810-1841), journalist and bookseller, was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He worked briefly on the Glasgow Herald before he followed his brother John to New South Wales, arriving in the Comet in 1828. He immediately took charge of a stationery warehouse run by the famous printer Robert Howe in Lower George Street. In 1831 he and two colleagues from the Sydney Gazette imported a printing press and began publication of the Sydney Herald. Although heavily involved in setting up the Herald, McGarvie's health was never strong, and he was soon compelled to return to Scotland. However, after a brief visit home, he returned to Sydney in 1832.This 1833 letter, then, dates from the very moment when McGarvie was once more finding his feet in Sydney. At the time of writing he was again working at the Howe's stationery warehouse - then under the proprietorship of Ann Howe - and also working as a jobbing printer. As the letter attests though, his ambitions were grander: 'I have just purchased a piece of ground next to where I am and intend in a few weeks to commence building a fine house and shop for myself so that I hope by the time you come out I will have a fine house and shop of my own to entertain you in. It will be two stories high and contain four rooms with back kitchen &c. and a large handsome shop with a separate entrance for the house.' If McGarvie's ambitions were realised this is a highly important sketch of his attempt to go alone as a printer: certainly it does predate the small series of now very rare books that were published over his separate imprint, most famously Thomas Shepherd's Lectures on the Horticulture of New South Wales of 1835.McGarvie's interest in printing waned after he a acquired a large land grand at Port Macquarie; he named his estate Mount Pleasant, and effectively retired there in 1835. McGarvie died in 1841. Some damage along the old folds, a small section of evidently blank paper missing.

         Du Système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France; suivi d'un appendice sur les colonies pénales et de notes statistiques.

      Paris, H. Fournier jeune, 1833, in 8°, de 2ff. VIII-439 pp., ill. de 5 gravures et plan h.t. dont 2 se dépl., demi-veau brun époque, dos lisse orné, à la marque "J. Chodron" frappée en queue, rousseurs surtout pour les planches. Bon exemplaire. (de la bibliothèque Chodron de Courcel) Edition originale du plus célèbre ouvrage sur les prisons. Résultat d'une mission d'étude confiée en 1831 à Tocqueville et Beaumont alors qu'ils étaient magistrats à Versailles, afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain. Ils publièrent leur rapport dès leur retour, mais aussitôt Beaumont fut relevé de ses fonctions de substitut, et Tocqueville solidaire, démissionna de son poste de juge suppléant. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera : « le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes ». Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage. Suite à cette expérience américaine allait paraître en 1835 "De la Démocratie en Amérique".¶ Sabin n°4190.

        Zoological Illustrations, or Original Figures and Descriptions of new, rare, or interesting animals, selected chiefly from the classes of Ornithology, Entomology, and Conchology, and arranged on the principles of Cuvier and other modern Zoologists.

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1820-1823 & 1830-1833. Six volumes, octavo, 318 handcoloured plates, an excellent set in uniform contemporary green half morocco over marbled boards, all edges gilt. A particularly attractive set of both the first and second series of this beautiful work of natural history; all published, and rare in such fine original condition. The importance of this work to Australian and Pacific natural history cannot be overestimated: several plates feature Australian specimens - particularly birds - figured for the first time, while many of the illustrations are derived from the collections of important figures such as Sir Joseph Banks, Elizabeth Bligh, Allan Cunningham and John Byron. Peculiarly attractive is a plate in the second series, depicting the Jamaican "Two-Toothed Disk Snail", from an original sketch by John Lewin, a friend of the Swainson family.Swainson's friend William Elford Leach, head of zoology at the British Museum, first encouraged him to experiment with lithography so as to make drawings of animals suitable for colouring. Thus began the publication of this, his first major work, in which all of the plates are by the author; Swainson was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography in this way, achieving a fresh and admirable style.The work deals with specimens from all around the globe, with many from Java, the East Indies, and the Americas (particularly Brazil, visited by Swainson in 1816). Of great interest are the many plates illustrating specimens from the South Seas. Swainson was particularly good on shells, although he relied on the sometimes poor recording of earlier collectors, and was sometimes not able to be more specific than simply giving their habitat as "South Seas". There are, nonetheless, three illustrations of Australian shells, the "New Holland Mitre", the "Mitra melaniana", and the "Scaphella maculata", the last from the collection of Elizabeth Bligh. Several other South Seas shells are from the collection of Sir Joseph Banks, including the "Mitra vitatta", about which Swainson comments that "this superb shell is figured from a matchless specimen brought home by that illustrious and lamented patron of science, the late Sir J. Banks, from the Pacific Ocean".The work is rich with images of Australian birds, with lovely depictions of the "Azure Kingsfisher", "Red-shouldered Parakeet", "Turcosine Parrakeet", "Blue-fronted Parrakeet", and the "Tabuan, or King Parrakeet" (drawn by Swainson from a live specimen). He includes an image of the "White-collared Honeysucker", with the interesting note that "Lewin's figure is so excellent, that I should not again have represented this bird, had not the plate been prepared previous to the publication of his work". Perhaps the most personal note accompanies his depiction of "Swainson's, or Blue-bellied Lory" (Trichoglossus Swainsoni), where he comments on his "pleasure at seeing our name affixed to this charming bird, and in clearing up its history. As a child we well remember our unwearied delight at seeing its figure in White's Voyage".Several Australian birds are depicted for the first time. This interesting group, which we list here with Swainson's original scientific designations, includes the "Yellow-tufted Honeysucker" (Melliphaga auricomis); "Red-Collared Parakeet" (Psittacus Barabandii), from a skin in the possession of Mr Leadbeater; the "Keel-billed Flycatcher" (Muscipeta carinata), "from a specimen belonging to Mr. Brookes; since which, I have received two others from New Holland"; and the so-called "New Holland variety" of the "White-eyed Warbler" (Sylvia annulosa), described by George Caley. Further, of great significance are the two birds noticed from specimens collected by Allan Cunningham, the famous natural historian and His Majesty's Botanist in New South Wales, who sent the specimens to Swainson: the "Black & White Robin" (Petroica bicolor) and the "Golden-eared Parrakeet" (Leptolophus auricomis). The latter had only recently been pictured in Edward Lear's Parrots, but Swainson criticises the "peculiarly inappropriate" name Lear gave it.Charmingly, three Australian butterflies are also figured here, two for the first time. The first is the "Cressida Butterfly" (Cressida Heliconïdes), from two in his own collection and 'received from Van Diemans Land'. The other two, the Australian Jasia-Butterfly (Jasia Australis) and the Australian Burnet (Heleona fenestrata), are both recorded as being collected on the north-west coast of Australia by Allan Cunningham on the King voyage.Not only is Swainson's important work rarely offered, very few examples in contemporary bindings seem to have survived as complete sets, as here: it is more commonly seen in parts, even as single volumes. This work is not in Ferguson, who did note Swainson's work in cataloguing Elizabeth Bligh's shell collection for auction in 1822 (Ferguson, 879). Sitwell lists the first series as having one hundred and ninety eight plates, but all copies of which we are aware, including the copy in the State Library of South Australia, have one hundred and eighty two plates, as here. Very occasional light foxing and toning.

        Sociedad Económica de La Rioja Castellana. Construcción del camino Logroño-Santander para la exportación de vino. Tramo Logroño-Fuenmayor ].

      La Rioja, 1801-1833. - ENVIRON 200 DOCUMENTS MANUSCRITS (approximativement 175 groupés en liasses et plus d'une vingtaine séparés). En feuilles sans reliure. Précieuse réunion de documents issus de la Société Economique de La Rioja, relatifs à la construction d'une grande route entre Logroño et Santander pour faciliter l'exportation du vin. La construction de cette voie était l'objectif principal de la Société depuis sa création en 1783, lorsque les récoltants de 52 communes de la Rioja se réunirent pour étudier ensemble les moyens d'améliorer leur résultats économiques. " ( ) Uno de los fines mas dignos y mas loables que se propuso en los principios de su instalacion [la Sociedad Rioana], fue hacer lo más extensiva posible la circulación de los licores, y demás productos del suelo de Rioja, y con particular aquellos, y para ello trató de caminos que le facilitasen á los puertos de la costa de Castilla, emprendiendo desde luego el que debía tener comunicación con Santander como mas inmediato ( ). La Rioja por medio de este tráfico, extrayendo sus licores y demás frutos sobrantes fuera de la Península, mudaría de aspecto, adquiriendo nuevos capitales, que podría luego emplear, en la misma industria ù otras analógas a su territorio, con que convidan su situación y su fecundidad" (Oración). Les travaux commencèrent en 1790 lorsqu'un décret royal désigna la Société comme responsable de la construction du chemin et de ses embranchements. Malheureusement, la construction de la route se heurta à de nombreux obstacles politiques, administratifs et économiques qui retardèrent son exécution pendant plusieurs dizaines d'années. La plupart des documents présentés ici, qui couvrent une période de plus de 30 ans, sont adressés ou ont été émis par Martin José Fernández de Navarrete, commissaire des travaux exécutés dans la ville de Fuenmayor par la Société, dont il était le vice-directeur. Hydrographe, navigateur et historien, auteur d'ouvrages bien connus sur la bibliographie maritime espagnole ou la vie de Cervantes, ces documents montrent que Fernández de Navarrete poursuivit aussi inlassablement l'objectif de la Société: la divulgation du nom de La Rioja et de ses vins.

        A Report of the Trial of the Rev. Theodore Clapp, Before the...

      1833. Religious Liberty and the Tyranny of the Mississippi Presbytery [Trial]. Clapp, Theodore [1792-1866], Defendant. [Channing, William Ellery (1780-1842)]. A Report of the Trial of the Rev. Theodore Clapp, Before the Mississippi Presbytery, At Their Sessions in May and December, 1832. New Orleans: Printed and Published by Hotchkiss & Co., 1833. xiv, 374 pp. Octavo (9-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Contemporary quarter cloth over plain boards, printed paper title label to spine. Light soiling and a few minor stains to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, which are bumped, chipping to spine label. Some toning to text, occasional light foxing, brief early annotations in pencil to a few leaves. Ex-library. Location label to foot of spine, bookplate to front pastedown, small embossed stamp to title page. A nice copy of a scarce trial. * Only edition. Clapp paid a heavy price for his gradual rejection of Calvinist views and embrace of Unitarian principles. He spent seven stormy years at the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans, affiliated with the Mississippi Presbytery, which finally convicted him of heresy in 1832. This is the record of his trial, preceded by a reprint of a sermon concerning the trial, "on the Subject of Religious Liberty," by William Ellery Channing, the foremost Unitarian preacher and theologian of the early nineteenth century. It warns of the evils of religion when it turns into "tyranny," as exemplified by the Mississippi Presbytery. Indeed, says the introduction, "no Presbytery in the United States ever before had the moral turpitude, the hardihood, the utter recklessness of justice, evinced by the Mississippi Presbytery" (xiv). OCLC locates 2 copies in North American law libraries (Harvard, Social Law). Jumonville, Bibliography of New Orleans Imprints 790.

A famous sale with fatal results. John Clerk, Lord Eldin (1757-1832), was one of the leading Scottish lawyers of his time; "he acquired so extensive a practice that, it is said, at one period of his career he had nearly half the business of the court in his hands. As a pleader he was remarkable, both for his acuteness and for his marvellous powers of reasoning, as well as for his fertility of resource. Possessed of a rough, sarcastic humour, he delighted in ridiculing the bench, and was in the habit of saying whatever he liked to the judges without reproof."-ODNB. He was appointed a judge in 1823. Clerk accumulated immense collections of paintings, engravings, drawings, china, bronzes, terra cotta, coins, and books. Upon his death, his collections were sold by auction at his house in March of 1833. On the third day of the auction of his estate, the floor collapsed, due to overcrowding and the poor construction of Clerk's house, killing one person and injuring a number of other bidders and spectators. The first two catalogues are both printed on large paper (the first is limited to 50 copies according to the verso of the half-title and the second has a contemporary note that there were only 12 copies printed on large paper). As far as we can tell, no regular paper copies were issued. Clerk was a bachelor with a penchant for the fine arts and devoted much of his leisure time either to drawing or adding to his considerable collections. His consulting room was said to be "overrun by his collection of art, literature, and animals [with] all manner of trash, dead and living, and all in confusion." He possessed paintings, prints, and drawings by Rembrandt, Holbein, Rubens, Dürer, Breughel, along with many other old masters. Additionally, Clerk had amassed "a most extensive and exceptional" collection of 55 volumes with hundreds of architectural drawings by Robert Adam, which he had inherited from his mother, Susannah, sister of the celebrated Adam brothers, the architects. 1210 lots. His library of 1422 lots contained important books in the fields of law, classics, history, the fine arts, with numerous luxury sets. In the third work (also printed on large paper), Howell (1788-1863), an Edinburgh writer and inventor (see ODNB), vividly recounts how the second floor of the home caved in and fell 16 feet below into Clerk's library. He then provides a list of those in attendance at the time of the accident, their occupations, and the degrees to which they were injured. The folding frontispiece map illustrates the floor plan of the house before and after the incident. Four of the five plates and the frontispiece in the first catalogue are reproductions of items in Clerk's collection, including "The Adoration of the Magi." The other plate is a fine steel engraving depicting a bust of the collector, executed by Robert Bell, a famous Edinburgh engraver. Nice copies.

Bookplate of James John Falconer, whom we believe was one of the "sufferers." ? ODNB.

        Cahier d'arithmétique fait chez Mr Michel François, instruc(teur) instituteur primaire

      3 cahiers grand in-4 de [28] Moussac (Gard), 1833, , 3 cahiers grand in-4 de [28] + [20] + [20] feuillets, soit 116 pages manusrites, calligraphiés et dessinés à l'encre brune et de couleurs (les 10 derniers feuillets étant vierges), brochés, sans couverture, coutures défaites, Cours de mathématiques élémentaires (additions, soustractions, règle de cent, exemples d'opérations diverses, etc...), mis au propre par un élève, Jacques Gounou, qui a orné l'ensemble de lettres calligraphiées et de plusieurs jolis dessins candides, en tête ou en marge, avec quelques rehauts colorés : c'est l'oeuvre d'un potache qui y a trouvé la même sorte de délassement que celui que les enlumineurs du Moyen Âge pratiquaient déjà, à savoir l'illustration d'un texte, parfois austère, par des vignettes sans le moindre rapport avec lui. Jacques Gounou fut élève dans la commune de Moussac, canton de Saint-Chaptes, arrondissement d'Uzès, département du Gard : ces information figurent sur le premier feuillet du premier cahier, avec la date du 12 février 1833. - L'illustration se compose, dans le premier cahier : d'une figure de cavalier (un dragon) ; d'un duo d'arlequins ; d'un milicien de la garde nationale brandissant à bout de chaque bras le drapeau français ; le même, reproduit à l'identique au revers, suivant le même tracé ; du buste d'un gradé militaire en uniforme à épaulettes. - Dans le second cahier : du dessin d'inspiration médiévale d'un griffon tenant dans ses serres la tête d'un jeune homme à terre. - Dans le troisième : d'un coq juché sur une trompette, tenant un rameau dans le bec ; d'un chameau et d'un cerf dans des rameaux où flottent 2 drapeaux français. Nous notons la tonalité patriotique de la plupart de ces dessins naïfs, notamment avec la récurrence du drapeau tricolore, remis à l'honneur par la Monarchie de Juillet depuis peu. Le jeune Jacques semble avoir été plus préoccupé par les remous accompagnant la consolidation du nouveau régime que par les instructions algébriques professées par M. Michel François... Ensemble à la fois charmant et évocateur. Feuillets dentelés. Aux endroits où l'élève a appliqué de larges aplats d'encre, le papier s'est en partie désagrégé.

        Mycographie suisse, ou description des champignons qui croissent en Suisse, particulièrement dans le canton de Vaud, aux environs de Lausanne

      3 volumes in-8, LV-522 + Genève, Imprimerie de P.A. Bonnant, 1833, , 3 volumes in-8, LV-522 + [4]-576 + VIII-759-[1]-95 pages, demi-chagrin vert, dos à quatre faux nerfs, Édition originale de cette mycographie, oeuvre principale du mycologue Louis Secretan (1758-1839), pionnier dans l'étude des champignons suisses et grand amateur de botanique, cette "douce et innocente occupation, qui élève et vivifie notre âme, qui nous rend moins cuisans les chagrins de la vie et nous fait oublier, dans la contemplation de l'ordre physique, les contradictions apparentes du monde moral". L'auteur s'impliqua pendant de nombreuses années dans la politique, tout en pratiquant la mycologie pour son délassement, avant de s'y consacrer pleinement et de publier cet ouvrage. La Mycrographie a paru sans illustration ; l'auteur justifie ce choix en préface : "On désire communément de voir un ouvrage sur les champignons accompagné de figures. Sans doute ce secours est utile, lorsque les figures sont excellentes. Mais on doit convenir qu'il en est peu qui méritent cet éloge (...) Il paraît donc que c'est bien plutôt par des descriptions très-exactes, que l'on peut espérer de faciliter et de généraliser l'étude des champignons. En effet, quelques lignes suffiront pour indiquer, sur chaque espèce toutes les variations de forme, toutes les différentes dimensions, toutes les nuances de couleur dans les divers âges ; sans parler de la saveur et de l'odeur, qui sortent du domaine de la peinture" (p. VI-VII). Bon exemplaire, non rogné. Étiquettes en pied des dos. Volbracht, Myko Libri, n° 1959. Pritzel n° 8569.

        Broadside, begins: Himno patriotico.

      Typographically embellished patriotic poetry: The hymn is written in quatrains and is printed within a "temple" created out of printers' ornaments, dingbats, and dashes. In the arch above the temple's pillars one reads, below the "Eagle and Serpent" logo, "Al glorioso recuerdo del Grito de Dolores." Integral with this, on what might be considered pp. 3 and 4, was printed another verse paean: M. B. [drop-title] Hidalgo en Dolores e Iturbide en Iguala. [colophon: Mexico: Imprenta de Valdez, a cargo de Jose Maria Gallegos, 1833. Folio (30.5 cm; 12"). [2] pp. The only institutions reporting ownership of this duo (the Spanish National Library, the British Library) catalogue them as separate items, not being in any way connected, but clearly, as this offering proves, they were printed at the same time, on the same press, on one single full folio sheet (i.e., 30.5 x 42 cm; 12" x 16.5"). Two examples of celebratory patriotic poetry and clearly very scarce. But one wonders, why were these printed in 1833, which was not a logical year for celebrating either the Grito de Dolores or the Plan of Iguala?

Charmant recueil inédit de chansons, écrit, signé et composé par Joseph Arnoux (on retrouve son nom dans un recueil contemporain de chansonniers à la B.N.F.) dans les premières années de la Monarchie de Juillet, tandis que Béranger qui est en pleine gloire publie en cette même année 1833 ses Chansons nouvelles et dernières : Ma profession de foi où avis au lecteur, imbue de la lecture des oeuvres de Béranger, j'ai osé comme lui fronder les abus et les ridicules. « c'est bien c'est très bien me disaient avec l'air de la conviction quelques uns de mes amis parmi lesquels figure un homme déjà connu par plusieurs succès littéraires » continuez vous marchez dignement sur les traces de nos modernes trouvères et autres balivernes semblables auxquelles (malgré le proverbe) j'avouerai que je n'ai ajouté aucune foi, ces louanges se donnant à la fin d'un repas où le vin n'avait pas été épargné et n'étant dues sans doute qu'à mes flacons vides et à l'amitié qui nous unissait. Je laisse au public éclairé à juger si elles sont fondées : j'attend du reste tout de son indulgence. Arnoux. Titre frontispice, large vignette aquarellée, encadrement à chaque page.

        Anthropologie in pragmatischer Hinsicht. Vierte Original-Ausgabe mit einem Vorwort von J. F. Herbart

      [9] ff., 323 pp. Leipzig, Immanuel Müller, 1833, in-8, [9] ff, 323 pp, cartonnage rigide, (posterieure), Réédition de ce texte de Kant, initialement paru en 1798. La traduction française "Anthropologie d'un point de vue pragmatique", entreprise par Michel Foucault, apparait quant à elle en 1964. Avant d'être rédigé, le texte avait été prononcé pendant plusieurs années lors de cours d'Anthropologie, inaugurés en 1772-1773. La première édition de 1798 coïncide avec la fin de ces cours, et la retraite définitive de Kant comme professeur. Cet ouvrage rassemble les réflexions anthropologiques de Kant, plusieurs des thèmes abordés sont déjà mis en place dans la "Critique de la raison pure" de 1781. Toutefois, ces réflexions n'ont pas pour objet d'offrir de réponse précise. Comme l'écrit Foucault : "Il est du sens initial de l'Anthropologie d'être exploration d'un ensemble jamais offert en totalité, jamais en repos en soi-même parce que pris dans un mouvement où nature et liberté sont intriqués dans le Gebrauch, dont notre mot d'usage couvre quelques uns des sens." [Foucault, 9, 32] Kant (1724-1804) était un philosophe allemand qui consacra sa vie à enseigner la philosophie. En établissant de manière critique les limites de la connaissance humaine, Kant fait la synthèse entre l'idéalisme et l'empirisme. Il invente la "philosophie transcendantale" qui n'est ni sensible, ni intelligible mais dans l'entre-deux. Elle met en évidence la nécessité de d'abord penser la finitude de l'esprit humain pour ensuite envisager l'absolu. Coins et coiffes émoussés, frottement aux charnières. Intérieur frais excepté une légère mouillure sur les coins supérieurs des trois premiers feuillets ainsi qu'un assombrissement des pages 78-79.
